‘You Crushed It’ Gift Tutorial with Free Printable Tags

Crush Soda Bottles with You Crushed It Gift Tagss

Next time you want to give someone a little pat on the back, how about this easy gift idea? It makes the perfect “I think you’re great” present for volunteers, clients, sports teams, teachers, employees, and anyone who has just been awesome.  The printable sheet may be downloaded for free at the bottom of this page, after the step-by-step instructions.


Color Printer (you may also bring the PDF to a copy store near you)
Paper Cutter
Hole Punch
White Card Stock
Crush Soda
Ribbon or Twine


STEP 1 Download and Print Your Tags

Download the PDF using the link at the bottom of this sheet.  Save it to your hard drive or a thumb drive.  The PDF is a letter size, 8.5×11 inch sheet, with six 3×4 inch tags on a page.

For paper, use a bright white cardstock.  I always say paper is a personal preference, so if you are not sure, go to the store and check out the selection.  That said, you are not going to see a huge difference,  and will likely be happy with any number of papers you can find on Amazon.  I used Neenah. If you do not have a printer, you can also just have them printed at an office store local to you.  The cost is usually about a dollar per sheet, and many vendors will also cut them for you.

Once you are ready, print as many sheets as you need.

STEP 2 Cut Out Your Tags

I prefer to use a paper cutter when I am cutting out tags, as it is easier to get the corners perfectly square using the guides.  I have the Purple Cows 12-Inch Two-In-One Scrapbook Combo Trimmer and I love it.  It has both the guillotine and the rotary trimmer, with lots of blades for different trims such as a wavy edge. If you don’t have a paper cutter, however, you can also use scissors.


After your tags are cut out, you can chamfer the corners, if you wish.  This is optional, as squared corners look nice, too.


STEP 3 Punch Holes

Using a small hole punch, create a hole in the top center (or, if you prefer, the top right corner.)

STEP 4 Tie to Bottles

You are almost done!  Using the ribbon or twine of your choice, tie the tags to bottles of any flavor Crush soda.  I used Rope King Sisal Twine and wrapped it several times around the neck of the bottle, then thread it through the hole and tied a bow. Easy peasy.
